05:07:13XShocKdoes anybody know how much time iriver ihp120 works on batteries, but without harddisk
05:07:43XShocKi mean on one charge of batteries, just playing sound
05:08:38XShocKand also, how mant "free" GPIO pins does a processor have?

05:20:18MarcC-awaycan someone recommend a good rockbox-able unit for someone who will use it for running?
05:23:23XShocKi had only used iRiver IHP-120. and i pretty happy with it
05:25:06MarcC-awayis rockbox better than default firmware on an ihp-120?
05:27:41MarcC-awaydepends on which features I'm caring about?
05:27:53TCKI guess
05:28:34TCKthe main thing I miss from the original firmware is the stability and buggyness
05:28:46TCKbut RB iRiver is still in alpha
05:28:50TCKso that's to be expected

06:12:17XShocKwhat gcc is used?
06:12:32XShocKi mean version
06:13:22XShocKit might be it, try updating gcc if it is old
06:13:34Aedareni'm not sure... I followed the instructions on the documentation page just a week and a half ago
06:14:18XShocKsry gottago
06:14:24AedarenYeah, I built it myself on cygwin from gcc 3.3.4 according to the instructions on the crosscompiler page

16:48:46Askusorry, wrong channel :)
16:49:15muesli__Asku sounds funny :D
16:49:15Askubut that would be "there a nice pond on the roof of the opposite building"
16:49:21Aedarenwhat language was that?
16:49:25Askuit's finnish
16:49:54AedarenIt would be interesting to see a finnish pond on a roof
16:50:39Askuheh, it's a flat roof so it looks just like a bond
16:51:23muesli__mmh...translation of pond gives me numbers of translation. but none of them make sense ;)
16:51:37Askuand the main thing: it has rained all day
16:51:46Aedarenso, either of you rockbox developers?

17:12:26HCldepends on which people you're looking for.
17:12:36HCli guess i qualify as a rockbox developer
17:12:45HClthough i would never call myself such
17:13:05HClAedaren: use gcc 3.4
17:14:02AedarenThe "build a cross-compiler" page suggested using gcc3.4
17:14:05AedarenI mean
17:14:13AedarenIs it out of date?
17:15:11Aedaren(the documentation I mean)
17:15:33AedarenI'm using cygwin... is there some easy way to get m68k-elf-gcc 3.4 or do I need to build it with gcc 3.4?
17:16:01HCli think it says somewhere that you should use 3.4 for iriver..
17:16:12HCli dunno
17:16:32Aedarenso, I just need to download gcc 3.4 and go through the "build a cross-compiler" thing again?
17:19:30Aedarenis 3.4.4 good for iriver?

17:27:03AedarenHas anyone tried to make the buttons customizable? Allow the user to change button combinations in a given mode?

17:30:18AedarenI thought I'd start off small, either by only allowing it in one mode (like while making OTF playlists) or completely swapping the button mappings
17:30:39LinusNwhat is your goal?
17:30:43AedarenThat would solve a few minor problems, like accidentally playing a song instead of queing it
17:31:04AedarenMostly resolving the problem with the Select playing something and long select bringing up a menu

17:35:34Changsitorandomly, the WPS lags and pushing buttons have no effect
17:35:35LinusNok i see it now

18:43:37AedarenI put it in my /home/Sean/rockbox folder, ran it -p0 and it said it was looking for metronome.c
18:43:40Aedaren(no path)
18:45:49bluebrother^ok, just looked at the metronome diff file.
18:45:59bluebrother^it has the paths missing :(
18:46:06Aedarenah... there's my problem
18:46:22Aedarenso normally: copy patch to root, and run from root with -p0, right?
18:46:49bluebrother^copy patch to somewhere and use the correct path to the file ;-)
18:47:12bluebrother^but, if you're ok having the patches lying around in the rb root: yes.

18:59:32XavierGrmetronome patch?
18:59:35XavierGrfor the iriver?

19:00:00AedarenI thought it would take a long time
19:00:13Aedarendo I need to run "make" before "make zip'?

19:54:31Wolf-guestand I really don't know if all the supported devices are discontinued
19:54:53Wolf-guestas it seems that both archos and iriver launched new series of devices
19:55:19Aedarenyou don't know what you want to get?
19:55:41Wolf-guesthd based player/recorder
19:55:55Aedarenwhat are you going to use it for?
19:55:58Aedarenjust listening?
19:56:05Wolf-guestcause I want to be able to also recorde some rehearsal studio sessions
19:56:14Aedarendefinitely go with the iriver h1xx
19:56:24Wolf-guestno, line-in recording is the key :-)
19:56:43Wolf-guestand also participate in the rockbox pjt, of course ;-)
19:56:43bluebrother^be aware: recording doesn't work for the h-1xx until now
19:56:54Aedarenyou'd have to use the normal firmware
19:56:57Aedarenwhich is easy
19:57:07bluebrother^the h-1xx has line in ...
19:57:37bluebrother^so until recording is finished you need to use the iriver fw which has some other flawks.
19:57:55Aedarenunless you went with archos
19:58:01Aedarenbut I've never liked the archos players
19:58:05Wolf-guestwhat about archos vs iriver, any preference?

23:09:43solexand it only lets me set the bitrate, not the quality.

23:27:06solexDarkkOne: wait, I am talking nonsense. Grip computes the speed with the help of the bitrate (which it doesn'tknow)
23:27:06BagderBDF is ascii, it could be done with a text editor. just a bit tedious
23:27:36austriancoderhi all
23:28:17bluebrother^Bagder: I did so but the result produces glyphs on Rockbox :(
23:28:21DarkkOneHehe... I was wondering
23:28:39bluebrother^so I was wondering if there is something I need to consider.
23:29:06Bagderbluebrother^: not that I can think of
23:29:08DarkkOneI mean, I know I'm using a different OS, but I tend to encode vorbis at about 13x at -q8...
23:29:28DarkkOneThough, that's always been transcoding..
23:30:43solexgrip has finished. 15 minutes for 63 minutes of music...
23:30:52solex-q6, Pemtium M 1.3 GHz
23:31:02 Quit Aison ("( :: NoNameScript 3.72 :: )")
23:31:29solexBut it sometimes had to wait for the next track to be ripped
23:31:53*solex reboots
23:40:01solexGrrr. The -q6 files aren't played either.
23:40:30DarkkOneWhat aren't they playing on?
23:40:30solexWPS is not displayed, but I can change volume while files are displayed.
23:40:49*solex has lost his definite articles
23:41:12DarkkOneThey play in software players on a PC?
23:42:41DarkkOneThat is really odd...
23:42:52solex~150 to 200 kBit
23:42:56bluebrother^I usually encode with -q 5 and had no problems ...
23:43:24DarkkOneI've never had problems playing oggs on an h120... I always encode at 8 (yes, I know I can't hear the difference. But I don't own *that* much music, and it's in preparation for t hat one song where I can, just in case)
23:43:58solexDarkkOne: which encoder (version, OS)?
23:44:26DarkkOneWindowsXP (yes, meh, laptops and linux don't *always* get along)
23:44:32DarkkOneAnd one sec while I double check the version
23:45:02solexhere: vorbis-tools from, version 1.0.1-1.4
23:45:49DarkkOneI'm using 1.1.0 through dbPoweramp
23:46:17bluebrother^I throw in vorbis-tools-1.0.1-4
23:46:58DarkkOneSo, we're all using different version of the encoder?
23:47:28bluebrother^not exactly. solex and me is the same upstream release
23:47:56DarkkOneSo it hardly make sense that they work for you and not him, right?
23:48:14bluebrother^I would say so.
23:48:40solexI could provide an example file for testing
23:50:27bluebrother^hmm. I'm thinking about to try -q6 or -q8
23:50:33DarkkOneI'd test, but my H120 is either 500 miles away, or in the mail between there and here. =/ It got left at a family reunion
23:50:47solexlucky family!
23:51:19solexgrrr, and I forgot to save those ripped wave files for more testing.
23:51:28DarkkOneYeah, I'm glad I didn't get a "No, we didn't find anything like that around there, sorry.."
23:52:29solexbluebrother^: that would be nice

23:53:03DarkkOneWere there any other flags, or was it just oggenc -q6 blah.wav ?
23:53:18bluebrother^wow, oggenc -q8 is pretty fast.
23:53:34bluebrother^when using -q5 I get a rate of about 3.5
23:53:49bluebrother^-q8 gave nearly 8 ...
23:54:32bluebrother^or was this just the file?
23:55:04DarkkOneI dunno
23:55:11DarkkOne8's always been very fast for me.
23:55:30bluebrother^hmm. Doesn't matter to me.
23:55:50DarkkOneNot as much work to do I guess, since there's less to trim, and less to compress, or something.
23:56:36matslSimulator/Build problem. I'm getting a floating point exception −− before main! Any ideas?
23:56:54Bagdermatsl: austriancoder gets it too
23:57:03Bagderbefore main...
23:57:14matslBagder: hi, ok
23:57:18bluebrother^solex: ok, I just tried oggenc -q8 cdda.wav, -q6, -q5. Everything works as expected.
23:57:20Bagderhi matsl
23:57:28Bagderthis rings a bell somewhere
23:57:49bluebrother^the -q8 has ~258kbps.
23:58:15solexDarkkOne: did you ask me about the flags?
23:58:37Bagdermatsl / austriancoder: you check the map file for oddities ?
23:58:39DarkkOneI was just curious if there was something else that could be causing the problem, other than the q setting.
23:58:52solexbluebrother^: strange.
